IndyCar Drivers Trade Up Cars for Sulkies with Flat12 Bierwerks

Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and Flat12 Bierwerks are set to host Celebs in the Sulky, the first-ever IndyCar Driver Celebrity Race for Charity, on Friday, April 27 at 6 p.m. Just off the race circuit and taking the reins in the sulky, world-famous Verizon IndyCar Series drivers Alexander Rossi, James Hinchcliffe, Robert Wickens, and Zach Veach will pair with Hoosier Park’s leading harness drivers Trace Tetrick, John DeLong, Sam Widger, and Ricky Macomber for an exciting harness race at the world class track in Anderson, Indiana.

Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will contribute $1,500 to the winning driver’s charity at a check presentation, held just after the celebrity race. The remaining three charities will also receive $500 each.

Hoosier Park guests of all ages are invited to meet the celebrity drivers at an autograph session in the lower level of the Terrace Showroom, following the charity race. Each of the four celebrity drivers are also competing in this year’s 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500, held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 27.

Celebs in the Sulky is sponsored by local craft brewery, Flat12 Bierwerks, located at 414 Dorman St. in Indianapolis. To kick off the event, Hoosier Park will offer Flat12 Bierwerks’ exclusive Hinchtown Hammerdown on Friday, April 27. In tribute to James Hinchcliffe, one of the brightest racing talents out there, Flat12 collaborated with James and created Hinchtown Hammerdown, a crisp and refreshing pilsner-style beer now lagered and cold-stored. It’s smooth, drinkable, and goes down fast – the perfect beer for a day at the track! Hinchtown Hammerdown will be available at Hoosier Park for the event

Dan Patch Wit, another Flat12 Bierwerks exclusive, will also be available during the event. The elite witbier was created in honor of Dan Patch, a Hoosier icon and the most historic harness horse in Indiana history. Guests may enjoy the Belgian Witbier year-round at Hoosier Park.

“We’re thrilled to host Celebs in the Sulky, the first-ever IndyCar Celebrity Race for Charity, here at Hoosier Park,” said Tony Renz, Director of Marketing Partnerships for Hoosier Park and Indiana Grand. “May is a big month for racing fans, and this event will help set the pace for the entire summer. My personal thanks go out to the folks at Flat12 Bierwerks for their help in putting this all together. It’s going to be a great event to raise awareness for four great causes.”
